Ingredients
  • 1 stick butter, room temperature
  • pinch of salt
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips for melting dipping
  • 1½ Tbsp oil
  • mini chocolate chips for garnish
Instructions
  1. Cream butter and sugar together in mixing bowl on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in salt, flour, condensed milk and vanilla until incorporated and smooth. Stir in mini chocolate chips. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm enough to form into balls.
  2. Shape the chilled dough into 1 - 1½ inch balls. Place on a baking sheet lined with wax paper and place in freezer to chill for about an hour.
  3. When ready to dip the truffles, melt the chocolate chips and oil in a heatproof bowl over a pot of simmering water. Dip each chilled truffle, one at a time, coating in chocolate and shaking gently to remove the excess. (If at any point during dipping, the cookie dough balls become to soft, return to freezer to chill). Mine did not become too soft.
  4. Transfer to a wax-lined surface and place in fridge to harden. When all have hardened keep stored in fridge in container or ziploc bag.
